Fulham Eyes Turkish Starlet

Sources close to Fulham’s transfer plans suggest they are preparing a €20 million opening bid for Besiktas’s young striker Semih Kilicsoy. While his single-minute appearance at Euro 2024 limited scouting opportunities, Fulham’s interest is clear.

Kilicsoy Prioritizes Premier League Move

Despite previous interest from Arsenal, Tottenham, and West Ham, Kilicsoy reportedly prioritizes a move to the Premier League. His representatives are believed to be urging Besiktas to accept Fulham’s offer, which significantly exceeds his current market valuation.

Silva Building for the Future

With manager Marco Silva already losing Tosin Adarabioyo to Chelsea, Kilicsoy’s arrival would demonstrate Fulham’s commitment to building a competitive squad. His potential and Fulham’s ambition could see his value rise rapidly if he adapts to English football.

Negotiations Key

While Fulham’s interest is clear, negotiations haven’t begun officially. Securing Kilicsoy’s signature will be crucial for Silva to continue his project at Craven Cottage.

Kilicsoy was part of the Euro 2024 squad this summer but did not get much playing time. The striker was a first team striker for the Black Eagles this season scoring 11 goals and three assists in 23 Super Lig games.
